|Bing Satellites - Twilight Sessions volume 3 - BFW recordings|
The third album in the Twilight Sessions series. Like the first two, this is a collection of improvised live recordings.

Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay.

|Unfelt Massive - Closer Contact|
The new abstract ambient album from Closer Contact. Magnus Larsson returns with his sixth release on BFW (including his collaborations with Meteer). This is yet another ambient tour de force - an album of mysterious electronic soundscapes. In his own words - I've tried to create a straight down ambient album with more or less no rhythm involved. Some of the songs are kind of divided into separate parts within and the last song ends with some glitchy clicking going on...

|Thirteen [BFW206] - The Ambient Visitor|
The new longform ambient album from The Ambient Visitor, a side project of BFW founder Bing Satellites. A continuous, 57 minute piece split into three parts. The music is generative: each note is played in a long loop, the length of each loop if different for each note, so although the music may seem to vary only slightly, it never quite repeats itself. I decided, perhaps because this is the thirteenth album, to start off in a darker mood...

The first in a new series of live, improvised ambient albums. 15 quiet ambient songs with 15 accompanying photographs. How the music is created: A 16 bar phrase is played. That phrase is fed into a slowly decaying 16 bar loop, similar to the one used in Twilight Sessions. That loop is fed into a slowly decaying 6 bar loop which repeats the first loop every 6 bars, so that soon, there are several layers of the original phrase that interact and create new themes and melodies...
